The Lakeside Family Physicians office at 16525 Holly Crest Lane in Huntersville is one of several Novant Health facilities losing physicians to a Tennessee health care company.

A Tennessee health care company will take over nine Lakeside Family Physicians offices.

Winston-Salem-based Novant Health confirmed the resignations of 41 physicians, who on May 31 will take control of five Lakeside family practices and four OB/GYN offices, all of which will operate under the umbrella of Kingsport, Tenn.-based Holston Medical Group.

“The recent resignations of 41 Novant Health physicians from multiple Novant Health Medical Group clinics and their decision to join Holston Medical Group was unexpected,” Novant said in a statement. “However, we value and respect these physicians and are working to ensure a smooth transition from the organization.”

The Family practice locations to be taken over by Holsten Medical are:

Huntersville – 6909 Prosperity Church Road, 16525 Holly Crest Lane.

Mooresville – 106 Langtree Village Drive.

Denver – 7482 Waterside Crossing Blvd.

The OB/GYN locations moving to Holsten’s control are:

Huntersville – 14330 Oakhill Park Lane, 6909 Prosperity Church Road.

Mooresville – 106 Langtree Road.

Denver – 269 Gillman Road.

Novant will continue to operate these Lakeside Family Physicians locations:

Huntersville – 14330 Oakhill Park Lane (Rosedale).

Cornelius – 19830 Zion Avenue, 19485 Old Jetton Road.

Mooresville – 130 Plantation Ridge Drive.

Denver – 269 Gillman Road.

The physicians who are leaving will continue at Novant until the transition, the company said.

Holsten Medical has posted about 150 job openings in Huntersville, Cornelius, Mooresville and Denver.

Holsten currently serves northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia.

"We are excited about the opportunity to partner with these physicians to expand efforts to provide high-quality, value-based care to the Charlotte community," Holston Medical said in a statement. "We feel our shared mission to introduce new models of care and technologies that better serve patients and accelerate innovation will lead to improved health and lower costs in the community."

Holsten, founded in 1977, has more than 800 employees.

Novant Health is a network of clinics, outpatient centers and hospitals in North and South Carolina, Georgia and Virginia. It employs more than 1,500 physicians and more than 28,000 workers overall.
